Put your questions to Armando Iannucci

Put your questions to Oscar-nominee Armando Iannucci at Research 2010

It’s been a good 24 hours for writer, performer and producer Armando Iannucci. He’s just scooped an Oscar nomination for his film In The Loop, in the Best Adapted Screenplay category.

Some of you may know that Iannucci will be taking centre stage at Research 2010 (Twitter hashtag #res10 ) in March. He’s our keynote speaker and I’ll be interviewing him on the first day of conference. We will of course be taking questions from the floor on the day, but I wanted to offer you the opportunity to shape the interview right here and right now.

Iannucci is the man responsible for some of the UK’s most groundbreaking, successful and just downright funny television comedy in the last decade or so. He was one of the key men behind Alan Partridge, The Day Today, Time Trumpet, The Friday Night Armistice and, of course, The Thick of It.

The themes I will be tackling with him at conference will probably include research and the creative process, public disengagement with government and institutions (and the role that satirists have played in stoking that), the future of television and media, the downside of user-generated content and his own approach to marketing his work.

What would you want to ask him? I may well put your question on the day and credit you (if you want).

Get in touch with me here and let me know what you’d like to ask.
